How to Connect to Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™

Honda CR-V Infotainment

If you’ve been looking at the vehicles in the new Honda lineup, you may have noticed that Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ are either standard or available on all models. Integrating your smartphone with your Honda adds convenience and enhances your Berkeley driving experience. One of the questions the team at Honda of Toms River often receives from many Brick-area drivers is: “How do I connect to Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™?” It’s really very simple to connect your smartphone to your Honda. All you need to do is follow the steps in this guide.

How to Connect to Apple CarPlay®

When connecting to Apple CarPlay®, we recommend using an iPhone 5 or later. It is also necessary to be in an area that supports CarPlay®. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Siri & Search, and turn Siri on. Then, follow these steps to learn how to connect Apple CarPlay®:

  1. Plug your phone into the CarPlay® USB port, which should be labeled with the CarPlay® logo.
  2. If your car supports a wireless Bluetooth® connection, go to Settings > General > CarPlay > Available Cars, and select your car.
  3. Start your car and leave it running.
  4. Ask Siri for what you need by either pressing and holding the Voice Control button on your steering wheel or touching and holding the CarPlay Home button on your touchscreen until Siri appears.

How to Connect to Android Auto™

When connecting to Android Auto™, it is best to have Android 5.0 (Lollipop) or a more recent version. Most Manahawkin drivers find that Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) works best. The following steps show you how to connect Android Auto™ to your Honda:

  1. Turn on Android Auto™ in your car’s settings.
  2. Download the Android Auto™ app from Google Play. When you plug your smartphone into your car with the compatible USB cable, you’ll receive a prompt to download the app.
  3. Unlock your phone’s screen.
  4. Review the Safety Information and Android Auto™ permissions.
  5. Turn on notifications for Android Auto™.
  6. On your vehicle’s display, select Android Auto™.
